I got nothin’ but pretty pictures

I got nothin’ but pretty pictures

I trundled my sorry way along the trail visible on the right today, and it picturesquely featured leaping horses and a waterfall, but I realized something important: when exerting yourself in a hot, dry climate, and navigating unfamiliar terrain to boot, remember the route back to your car, jackass!. Also maybe bring water.

Our PSA for today.

    Glad to hear you’re okay… Does the name “Doug Pappas” mean anything to you?

    You guys are sweet, but if I’m going to be completely honest there was no point on the run where I had anything less than excellent cell phone reception, nor was there any point where I was out of sight of at least a couple of dozen McMansions. It’s a long wilderness area, but not a very wide one.

    If John Krakauer wrote a post-mortem on me he’d have to call it Adjacent To The Wild, is what I’m saying.

    Uh, belated, but I too am glad you’re not dead.

    I’m not.

    There, I said it.
